2013 starts right with Cold Fusion 101 at MIT for second year

Watch Cold Fusion 101 lectures in order here.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Professor Peter Hagelstein and Dr. Mitchell Swartz of JET Energy are offering an IAP short course Cold Fusion 101: Introduction to Excess Power in Fleischmann-Pons Experiments for a second consecutive year.

The course runs from Tuesday, January 22 through Wednesday, January 30, 2013 from 11AM-1PM in Room 4-153 and 66-144 on the MIT campus.

Participants in the course will learn about cold fusion from a top theorist in the field, as well as one of the industry’s leading technologists.

In January of last year, a successful demonstration of the NANOR energy generator attracted the attention of state lawmakers.

The cold fusion energy cell built by Dr. Mitchell Swartz of JET Energy produced excess heat continuously for months on the MIT campus. Described as a zirconium-oxide nanostructured quantum electronic device, the phenomenon was observed by both students and the condensed matter nuclear science (CMNS) community as well as members of the general public.

From “Demonstration of Excess Power from the JET Energy NANOR at MIT” by M.Swartz and P Hagelstein
Mitchell Swartz and Peter Hagelstein released Demonstration of Excess Heat from a JET Energy NANOR at MIT [.pdf], a report summarizing their excess heat results from the cell.

Patent lawyer David J. French attended the 2012 Cold Fusion 101 course and filed a report Conclusively Demonstrating the New Energy Effect of Cold Fusion describing the NANOR capabilities in detail.

  1. From the excellent coverage of the LENR saga that your site provides , my guess is that in 2013 we will see the beginning of a “chain reaction” of laboratories and companies worldwide trying to get new insights into this problem. As someone wrote a few days ago, it is now unstoppable and I add that it will also increase in exponential fashion. I have a profound respect for the scientists who have risked their reputations to bring this fantastic phenomenon into the limelight. They should be given status of heroes !
    Thank you

  2. Look into e-Cat Site: the articles Belgian LANR Patents, LANR by Coulomb explosion and
    Cold fusion catalyst for explantion of cold fusion through the use of hydrogen anions (H-).

    1. On April 26 2005, at MIT, Chris Llewellyn Smith spoke about “The Fast Track to Fusion Power”.
      Neither him nor anyone else in the audience say a word about cold fusion.
      I wanted to get up and say “How can you ignore that?!” but I didn’t want to start a polemic discussion. It was my birthday and it was a beautiful day.

    2. Please read Eugene Mallove’s MIT Special Report for the documented evidence on the shoddy effort by the Physics Department in association with the Plasma lab’s reproduction tests. MIT hot fusion scientists not only performed a poor experiment, but shifted their data down.

      Melvin Miles and Peter Hagelstein have analyzed the MIT experiments and found the multiple errors: http://coldfusionnow.org/melvin-miles-on-calorimetry/

  3. Sad that this technology was discovered at least 30 years ago and summarily discredited. Now it will still meet stiff resistance and is almost unheard of in the main stream population.

    Like with climate change science as soon as money enters the picture the laws of physics are easily bent. Nice to see that allot of scientists are still trying to be real scientists and are pushing technology like this foward.
